|New World Notes 249 - Surviving the Collapse - Kenneth Dowst|
30-minute radio program for December 11, 2012. Secular prophet Michael Ruppert has been quirky, controversial ... and very often right. In this interesting monologue, he explains why Western industrial civilization is unsustainable and beginning to collapse--and what Americans can do to weather the transition. Surprisingly, he ends on a note of optimism. From Chris Smith's 2009 film, "Collapse." http://newworldnotes.blogspot.com/ ...

It is argued that while Georgi Lozanov's suggestology and suggestopedic methods are informed by work in the field of suggestion in the former Soviet bloc, his work has also been influenced by work on suggestion in the west, particularly in France, where suggestion is a more controversial technique. For Lozanov, suggestion is a normal phenomenon and a positive concept. His contribution was not only in linking suggestion to education, but also of integrating many types of suggestion (direct, indir...

Examination of the characteristics of models of Western critical thinking from a different perspective may help educators realize what these models do not allow. Western processes of reasoning are highly Aristotelian, based on Platonic dialectical forms. Relationships of the parts are established upon clearly defined criteria, and the methods tend to be linear. Western logic demands acontextual analyses, and critical thinking urges explicitness to achieve a decontextualized analysis...

A new parochialism is present in the United States. The view represents a foreclosure that anchors itself to Europe against a tide of non-European peoples. U.S. Eurocentrists proclaim union on the basis of race to counter the perceived threat of non-whites and to stifle dissenting voices from those who would contest the dominant order. An alternative parochialism celebrates a minority's exceptionalism, characterized by inventions of traditions, affirmations of fragile identities, and exclusion o...
